This book was a regular page turner. I could not put it down because I was hungry to learn more and see what would happen next. It is steeped in history, mystery, and religious overtones that enlighten, entertain, and enrapt you, the reader. Daniel Levin writes from the same thrilling and knowledgeable perspective that Dan Brown does and I see no reason this book should not become an international bestseller

Author: Robert Rave            
Publishers: St. Martin’s Press
ISBN: 978-0-312-54436-2

This zany novel presented all of the necessary ingredients for non-stop reading and entertainment to the max (i.e., drugs, sex, insider celebrity profiles, scandal, and more).  I was honestly sad to see it end. As a first novel this was better than superlative!  I look forward to watching this book rise up the charts and gain recognition and accolades for author Robert Rave. Congrats on a job well done!

Author: Phillip Good
ISBN: 978-1-44040-245-6

Mr. Good’s writing technique is quite skillful. He blends prose with poetry in the exploration of young unrequited love. The plot seems to lead one [the reader] into a romance and love affair gone awry.

The End of Materialism would be best read by those with an open mind and a natural desire to ‘know’ the unknown. While it is not possible for us to ‘know’ with 100% certainty there is some compelling evidence offered in this book about how to make sense of the world around/within us.
